What People Are Saying
Aspire OT Instructor
Megan obtained a MS in Occupational Therapy from Indiana University in 2012 and has worked in a multitude of settings focused on adult populations including acute care, long term care, work site injury prevention, and outpatient ortho/neuro/post-concussion. Currently, she works as an inpatient OT in Boise, Idaho. During her OT career, she has been drawn to focusing on holistic pain intervention from an occupation-based perspective, health and wellness, and mental health. In 2017, Megan obtained her Therapeutic Pain Specialist Certification through the International Spine & Pain Institute (ISPI), one of the first OTs to do so, and eventually she sought out Fellowship in Pain Sciences, graduating from this program as the second OT practitioner to achieve this designation in 2020. She has also achieved her Applied Prevention Health Promotion Therapist Certification in 2018 through The Academy of Prevention and Health Promotion Therapies, the first occupational therapy practitioner to do so. She is slated to co-author the chapter “Pain Management” in the upcoming 3rd edition of “OT in Acute Care.” She is INCREDIBLY passionate and truly in love with the scope of practice that occupational therapy provides, and this is exactly why she became involved with the Idaho Occupational Therapy Association (IOTA) currently serving as their President-Elect. Her passion is fueled each and every day by her husband, Joe who works full time as a Major in the National Guard and her two children, 6-year-old James and 2-year-old Morgan.
